Reviews for the Acer Swift 1 SF114-34 P2VU

If your leading laptop priorities are extreme portability, sterling battery life, and a low price tag, then the Acer Swift 1 is quite a hard package to beat. It sports a tidy, compact design, will last an extended work-day on a single charge, and prices start from a very reasonable £350. Connectivity is strong too, with USB-C and HDMI ports included, as well as a fingerprint reader and Wi-Fi 6 support. While performance is perfectly solid at the entry and mid-point of the pricing range, you might find it a little wanting if you were to splash out an extra £200 on the top model covered here. The competition gets a lot more serious when you cross that £500 threshold. Provided you stick with the mid-spec models, however, the Acer Swift 1 is an excellent portable pick.

A tight budget often means you’re restricted to clunky laptops. That’s not the case with the Acer Swift 1 though. It’s sleek, slim and has a decent quality screen, a long-lasting battery and it even has a fingerprint sensor. You do lose out on performance, but that shouldn’t be a huge issue if you just need it for typing, browsing and streaming Netflix.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
